Every year I do a blog post to celebrate our mothers. My Mother’s Day post is usually closer to May as in Canada and the US we celebrate Mother’s Day in May.
Today I searched the Internet for Mother’s Day information and came across Marks & Spencer Mother’s Day Flowers. When I saw the beautiful Marks & Spencer Mother’s Day Flowers website, I realized that every year I have been missing a lot of my fans in the UK with my Mother’s Day posts.
I have done a little research now and have found out that in the United Kingdom, Mother’s Day is also referred to as Mothering Sunday. Mother’s Day in the United Kingdom is celebrated on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Whereas Mother’s Day in Canada and the US is celebrated on the second Sunday in May.
So this year, we are posting our Mother’s Day post in time to honor all our United Kingdom mother’s. I am sorry we celebrated you so late over the last few years.
Mothers work hard day and night. Mothering is a full time job that receives the best payment possible, the love of our children. We get hugs and smiles. We get to witness achievements. We nurture and even have to lecture. We listen as well. We are there to cheer and to console. We are there for everything and we do it because we love our children more than words can explain.
Our job is so complex as a mother that I will leave it to Anita Renfroe to describe it as she does it so well.
Happy Mother’s Day
